A:   Hi,
Thanks for the query.

I understand your concern.
The bump could be possible infected sweat or sebaceous gland, the hole appearing on the bump might occurred due to displacement of white head.
Taking analgesic and anti-inflammatory drugs and sitz bath with minimal disinfectant added lukewarm water can help in treating the bump.
If bump persists even after these measures, please do consult your doctor and get examined to find out the need for antibiotics and take treatment accordingly.

Take care
